Our Armour Plates are NIJ Standard-0101.06 and SANS 1658:2007 tested/certified.


Our plates are made of composite or a combination of composite & ceramic materials. The composite/ceramic plates are tested according to NIJ Standards-0101.06 & SANS 1658:2007. We have a variety of options including hard and soft plates in our composite range.



We are identifying and stocking a bespoke selection of gear to complement your personal protection. Our inventory is growing daily and we are constantly looking to provide a wider, more popular number of brands and designs to meet the market requirements.


Why Ultra High Molecular Weight Polyethylene & Ceramic Armour Plates?


Kevlar resists heat, has great tensile strength, and is lightweight. Ultra high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE), provides a great bulletproof ability when combined with other materials.


Excellent resistance to stress and high resistant to cracking. Abrasion wear resistance – 15 times more resistant to abrasion than carbon steel. Low weight with high strength. Extreme hardness and durability, good chemical resistance, impact resistance, easy to fabricate and a very low coefficient of friction.


It has extremely long chains, with a molecular mass usually between 3.5 and 7.5 million amu. The longer chain serves to transfer load more effectively to the polymer backbone by strengthening intermolecular interactions. This results in a very tough material, with the highest impact strength of any thermoplastic presently made.


It’s non-toxic. FDA approved for use in food and medical applications. UHMWPE is biocompatible and stable in the body. UHMWPE is recyclable.

Armour Plates

Our plates are tested to NIJ Standard-0101.06 & SANS 1658:2007. They are tested to NIJ standard and are rated at threat levels IIIA (Soft), IIIA (Hard), III, and IV. Our UHMWPE/Ceramic Armour Plates aim to provide the highest protection at the lightest weight to protect the user while also minimising the impact it has on mobility and endurance.
